If you’re interested in making a positive difference in the fight against cancer, then join in with your friendly McHenry County real estate neighbors this weekend at the 2012 North McHenry County Relay for Life.

Since cancer never sleeps, Relay for Life is an all night event lasting from 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 23 to 6 a.m. Sunday, June 24. Spend the evening camping out in McHenry Township Park and take turns walking or running around the track and enjoying a night full of entertainment for a great cause. There is a schedule packed full of events throughout the night, including silent auctions, a musical chairs scavenger hunt and various children’s activities that will be available until 8 p.m., including pick a duck, a baseball toss and mini bowling.

So far, the 2012 North McHenry County Relay for Life has 288 registered participants on 38 different teams that have raised almost $37,000 for cancer research. Don’t worry if you are not registered yet though, because Relay for Life is open to everyone. This event is also extremely moving for anyone that has been affected by cancer. Participants get to support cancer survivors as they walk in the special survivor’s lap while luminaries line the field honoring and remembering those who have faced cancer.

There is no better feeling than a sense of a strong community that is willing to come together to celebrate, remember and fight back against cancer, and Relay for Life is just one of the many organizations that the McHenry County community rallies around.

If you want to call McHenry County home, then keep us in mind. We build energy efficient homes at Liberty Trails near fun community events like the Relay for Life.
